Loved the place must try the Yak burger

My favourite, The Yak Burger not always available but I had it most of the time I visit Thimphu. This place is good for hang out at night, catch up with sport event and had good food.

We chose this restaurant because it had free wifi....But after having the food here we were content.we really relished the food.we had ordered pork ribs and chilli pork which was absolutely finger licking.The decor of the place was also very jazzy and upbeat.Overall a must to do if in Thimpu.

If you're missing continental/american greasy food, this is your place. They do keep some Bhutanese food as well but not a very wide range. Service was prompt and place, hygienic.

The location and ambience is excellent. We ordered Yak-burgers which were Nu480 a piece . Other items are less expensive.The burgers were good and getting to taste yak's meat was a novelty . The crowd is young and touristy. The staff is OK. There is a separate smoking zone. You can sit outdoors too, but the cold kept us indoors.... More

On the main streets of Thimpu, this place not offered a good coffee, but great place to hang out. We ordered few snacks and side order and finger food, though it was as per western standards, though we were also not expecting it to be. But at the same time the food was good. Try the Bhutanese chilly paste at... More

The place has a good American burger-bar menu, and more importantly, a very good view of the thoroughfare. It is right opposite a football stadium as well. You may sit either on the cozy inside or the cool outside.

The place has the taste of united kingdom's pubs. Its boiserie with football teams pictures and bar high table complement the outside tables and benches. Located near the footbal stadium it's a nice place for a local beer and a good, reasonably priced, meal. Staff is attentive and service fast.

Friendly and Cozy atmosphere. This restaurant is located in downtown, Thimphu, opposite the stadium. The staff ,esp. owner, are super friendly and welcome. Coffee is "illy" which is one of best taste. Recommended desserts are they homemade "Apple Crumble" , Black Forrest" cake and "Cheese Cake". Next time, i would try pizza and burger:)
